Review Policy (updated 12/26/2015)
Thank you for considering me as a possible reviewer for your book(s). Here is some information you should know before submitting a request to me.
I always write honest reviews. What that means is that if a book doesn’t resonate with me, I will say so. My reviews are never disrespectful or mean spirited, but I always share my uncensored, undiluted opinions with my readers. Please do not ask me to review your book if you are only looking for positive reviews, because I cannot guarantee that.
I reserve the right to not finish and/or not review a book that I accept for review. I do review every single book I read; however if I am not enjoying a book after 50-100 pages (depending upon the total length of the book) I will usually abandon said book, which means it will not get reviewed. (This is a pretty rare occurrence, but I consider my time valuable and this isn’t paid work).
If you have a particular time frame within which you’d like the review of your book to be published, please specify this in your original request. I always try to be accommodating and my review schedule has some flexibility built in, but quick turnaround is not possible without advance notice because my reading schedule is usually planned at least a month in advance. I will review at my own pace unless otherwise requested.
This blog focuses on Young Adult Fiction, but I don’t review exclusively from that genre. I have happily featured Graphic Novels, Children’s Literature, Autobiographies, Historical Fiction and more.
I accept review requests for all EXCEPT the following genres: Business, Finance, Economics, Self Help, Christian Literature, Religious and Motivational Literature, True Crime, Nonfiction geared toward the professional sector, and Erotica.
I DO review audiobooks and ebooks. Please let me know if your book has multiple formats and if you have a preferred medium in which I read it.
In addition to this blog, I typically publish my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and sometimes LibraryThing and Self Publishing Reviews. If you’d like me to publish the review elsewhere I’m happy to accommodate.
